Nicholas "Blake" Davidson

Nicholas “Blake” Davidson, 25, of Lazy Glen, died Dec. 21, 2006, in an avalanche in the Lower Ladder section of Hanging Valley Wall at Snowmass Ski Area. Blake was born Feb. 17, 1981, in Spokane, Wash., to Bruce Davidson and Nikki Angelo. Blake lived on and off in both Washington State and the Roaring Fork Valley. He returned permanently to the Aspen area in 1999 to pursue his dream of skiing. He was sponsored by High Society, AspenSnowmass and Obermeyer and worked as a Sushi Chef at Kenichi in Aspen. He recently went to Austin, Texas, to further his professional knowledge and, as usual, befriended those with whom he came into contact. Blake’s ability to make those around him feel special was legendary; his humility, ever-present crooked smile, and compassion will remain with us always. He was an incredible son, brother, homie and skier. He died doing what he loved, and we are all so proud to have had him in our lives. He shone brightly here on earth, and shines even brighter from where he plays now. He is survived by his father; mother Nikki Angelo; brother Jeremy; sister Brittany Davidson; nephews Cade Davidson and Benjamin Blake Rose; and niece Amara Davidson.
